I want to thank you for sharing the
crashing of the waves.

To sit on the golden sand
and look out and be reminded that
endless possibilities exist.

That life isn’t just tiny rooms
and living out of boxes.

That life won’t always be slamming cabinets
and emails that go ignored.

It meant so much to be intentional,
to stop the everyday
and to focus on two things:
us and an expansive horizon.

I can still smell the sea spray in your hair
and the hint of lotion on your skin.

I can still see the soft flutter of your dress
and your toes gently digging in the sand.

Press into me; please stay close.
